Opening a Window of Discovery on the Dynamic Universe

LSST at AAS 219

LSST will have a presence at the January 2012 meeting in Austin, starting with a half-day "splinter meeting" in the Austin Convention Center on Sunday afternoon, January 8th.  The ten coordinated posters in LSST session 156  will be up for one day, Monday, January 9th.  An LSST booth in the exhibit hall will also be up throughout the meeting.

Financial support for LSST comes from the National Science Foundation (NSF) through Cooperative Agreement No. 1258333, the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science under Contract No. DE-AC02-76SF00515, and private funding raised by the LSST Corporation. The NSF-funded LSST Project Office for construction was established as an operating center under management of the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA).  The DOE-funded effort to build the LSST camera is managed by the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC).
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 to promote the progress of science. NSF supports basic research and people to create knowledge that transforms the future.
NSF and DOE will continue to support LSST in its Operations phase. They will also provide support for scientific research with LSST data.
